The session was moderated by Günter Seibt, Partner at GSC4 GmbH.

In his presentation, Tadzio Schilling pointed out that the global sustainability agenda and the climate agenda are inextricably linked. 

In order to ensure economic recovery in this new reality, Russia will have to look for innovative approaches. Among other things, it will have to integrate more deeply into the new global supply chains that will emerge after the pandemic and find new niches for itself in the international market. The EU is a good partner in these initiatives.

As the AEB CEO noted, if the energy transition and green technologies take a valuable role in trade and investment, this could be a qualitatively new area of bilateral cooperation that would have a positive impact on improving economic relations.

Tadzio Schilling also spoke about the AEB's new Green Initiative project aimed at protecting the interests of European business, promoting the best European practices and technologies, and developing cooperation with Russian stakeholders and partners in the field of climate policy and energy efficiency of production.
